Of Mice and Men
Dramatic and touching in equal measure, this American classic follows two friends, George and Lennie, as they drift from job to job across the fields and farms of California during the hardship of the 1920s. The unlikely duo makes ends meet by taking up work as laborers, dreaming of one day being able to own a piece of land to call their own. When Lennie, a gentle giant with a simple nature, runs into trouble on one of the farms, George must choose between standing by his best friend or staying the course to fulfill his own American dream.
